With fantasy and supernatural dramas being the biggest thing since…ever…on television, NBC has snapped up “Wonderland”, based on Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland”, according to Deadline.
Executive produced by “CSI” creator Anthony Zuiker, “Wonderland” is set in the years after “Alice in Wonderland” and is said to focus on Alice and a new character, Clara.
Sounding eerily familiar to ABC’s hit “Once Upon a Time”, the plot of the series has been thusly described:
“Seven years ago, Clara’s life to an unexplained turn for the worse, and a mysterious stranger tells her there may be an explanation after all… an explanation that lies in the fantastical world of Wonderland. To revive her dreams and get her life back on track, Clara must wage war against Wonderland’s reigning Queen, the woman we once knew as Alice.”
Zuiker describes his screenwriting partner as “a true visionary” and is extremely excited about the reimagining of the character of Alice.
